Two of the hardest worked and the
most abused being on this earth are
.w?tiicn and mules. It is a true saying
fjiat man works from sun to sun, but
woman's work is never done. She
toils day and night. The lirst thing
in the morning, she rises and makes
a fire to get breakfast, washes the
dishes, milkes the cow and carries her
to the pasture; slops the pigs and
foods the chickens; churns the milk,
Cuts stove-wood to cook the next meal
and often cuts and Illings in her fire

for the family, cleans house, nurses
the babies, helps her husband hoe and
pick -he cotton. She plants and works
the garden, If they have any: she
bears her husband's children and has
the 'are of them night and clay and
When sick she nurses them: her lord

Water, or make a lire for her to warm
be:self and sick child. And top of all,
if she complains, Bite is treated to a
big talk by the man who has sworn
to guard and protect her. This pic
ture is too true la our sunny South
Did you ever sec a white of black
man pet a mule? lie is treated to
blows and kicks instead of caresses
lie :s a patient animal, and works
s. v n days in the week. Often halt
fed. with sore back and shoulders, he
pulls the plow and the wagon. What

and negro He turns the soil to make
the crops, ii?' goes to the mill, hauls
the lire wood, entries the cotton to
town, brings back the guano and corn
and Hour and pulls the buggy to
church on Sunday. He builds our
railroads, our public roads and grades
our streets:, in fact is an Important
factor in all public works.
What would WO do without the
The old Church Choir.
I seem to hear the voices
And the songs they used to sing,
The sweet reverberation
"Jesus All to Thee 1 Bring."
I see the old choir in its place
Just as it used to be.
And softly through the years comes
"Nearer, My God, to Thee."
And the voice. O, the voices
Of that happy long ago.
To my listening soul are singing
All the songs I used to know.
Comes an echo far and faintly
Of the world that is to be.
Like a benediction, saintly
"Rock of Ages Cleft for Me."
Friends of other days, I see them
Gathered in that holy place;
They are singing of my Saviour
"When 1 meet Him Face to Face."
Still the melody is ringing.
Swelling to that old church dome,
Sweetest peace to me is bringing
"When We'll Be Gathered Home."
And my life though lone and friend
Sorrow's billows round me roll.
Vet they speak of joy that's endless
"Jesus, Lover of My Soul."
Far across the gloom and shadows
Gleams a beacon fair and bright.
Pilot of my soul forever,
"Lead Thou .Me, O Kindly Light.'
Lead, and witli Thy beams to guide me
I at last shall reach the goal,
storms of life no more betide me.
